IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light, and this adaptable technology delivers safe and effective treatments for a range of skin applications. The results are clinically proven, and patients can typically return to their normal daily activities with no downtime. IPL treatments of all kinds are not suitable for those with dark skin. At All Skin Laser in Calgary, we use IPL for:
IPL Hair Removal for Permanent Hair Reduction
A directed pulse of light is applied to the skin, removing the hair from deep down. Though you might experience some heat and stinging on your skin, discomfort is usually minimal. For protection, amla can be applied on your skin before treatment. Depending on the area being treated and other factors, treatment may have to be done each month or every two months until the final desired result is reached. Before your treatment, we will consult with you on what to expect and how to care for treated skin after a session. Although IPL treatments can’t guarantee permanent or complete hair removal, the treatment can reduce future hair growth.
Electrolysis for Permanent Hair Removal
IPL hair reduction treatment will not provide results on blonde or grey hair. Those with blonde or grey hair should use electrolysis for hair removal. Electrolysis is medically recognized as the only method of permanent hair removal. Our clinic is a member of the Electrolysis Society of Alberta.
We also offer rejuvenating IPL photofacials. To consult with us about the applications of our IPL and electrolysis treatments, call All Skin Laser now. For more information about the process and effects of electrolysis, be sure to check out our About Electrolysis page.
